Customer Testimonial

Robin, your e-mail is so exciting - your qualifications and obvious love of animals are the reasons we HAPPILY will be driving 98 miles one way to ensure our dog is trained well. We are going to soak up every bit of information you have, and I actually laughed out loud reading that you're currently training 12 and have two of your own - plus two other dogs. That's amazing! I can't wait to introduce Xaffi to you. 


Finding qualified trainers like yourself and Chuck has been far more difficult than we ever imagined and we were actually beginning to worry and were considering sending Xaffi far away for her training to ensure she was trained by certified professionals. I'm not sure if you've ever heard of them, but I found out about the IACP website (and then you!) through a book I'm reading by the Monks of New Skete, It was so wonderful speaking with Chuck yesterday because everything he spoke about matched what I've been reading, which was incredibly comforting. We heaved a huge sigh of relief after receiving your e-mail...let me tell you, we have spoken to many "trainers" and some of what we heard was a bit scary! :) 


Greatly looking forward to meeting you, and will be in touch ASAP to begin making appointments for training.


Happiest of Fridays to you,




We have more than 20 years of experience training dogs.
